Provincial and Territorial Regulatory Bodies - Nurses in Canada



In Canada, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs) and Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs) are regulated by different regulatory bodies determined by each provincial government. In Ontario, however, there is only regulatory body for RNs and LPNs. The territories have regulatory bodies for RNs only.

Canadian provinces and territories, with the exception of Québec, require that you write an examination to become licensed to practice nursing in Canada. This examination can only be written in Canada on the recommendation of a provincial or territorial nurses association. There is a difference examination for Québec nurses.
